Addressing health inequalities has become a more pressing goal, exacerbated not only by the COVID-19 pandemic but by pressures on our health systems, demographics, and socio-economic and historical factors. The UN Sustainability Goals, which support the implementation of universal health coverage by 2030, highlight that ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being at all ages is essential to sustainable development - everywhere.
Digital health technologies have a role to play in addressing health inequalities with the potential to improve access to healthcare and providing innovative tools for patients and practitioners; at the same time, the development and use of digital technologies in health can reinforce, exacerbate, create health disparities, or even lead to the so-called digital health paradox. The latter concerns those who would benefit from health technologies the most but have the least access to it
Join us for conversation with innovators, entrepreneurs and practitioners within health and healthtech, who will share their journeys and experiences in driving diversity, equality, and inclusion in their organisations, and embedding it into their practices and product development. Health equity is a global challenge, no matter whether you live in the UK, Eastern Europe, or the Middle East and thus, we will bring in all these perspectives into the conversation.
When: Thursday 23rd March 09:00-10:00 GMT
